From the weekly update from Charlottetown Farmers’ Market:
We bid our fantastic Market Manager, Bernie Plourde, a fond farewell this past weekend. Bernie has been with the Market for 7 years and has made an indelible mark on our market and community, spearheading countless initiatives, including the launch of CFM2GO during the pandemic. We’ll miss you Bernie!
Bernie is a great friend to the community in innumerable ways indeed; his tenure as manager at the market has been remarkable for the improvements to the building, for the multiple pivots required by COVID, and for his calm, cool, friendly demeanour in thick and thin. The members of the market coop have strong personalities, not easily wrangled into cooperation; that Bernie steered the ship for 7 years is a testament to his character. He will be missed.
